A 13-year-old Muslim schoolboy has become the youngest victim of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.K.
Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab from Brixton, south London died at King’s College Hospital early Monday after testing positive for COVID-19 last Friday.
“Ismail started showing symptoms and had difficulties breathing and was admitted to King’s College Hospital. He was put on a ventilator and then put into an induced coma but sadly died yesterday morning,” his family said in a statement.
The family, who lost their father to cancer, said the young teenager had no underlying health conditions.
